Into the glacier & Northern Lights Tour

Visit the ice cave in Langjökull Glacier and see the Northern Lights!

New Tour

Join us on this morning/evening tour and combine two of the best activities in one day! Explore the ice tunnel on the Langjökull glacier in the morning and go hunting for the magnificent Northern Lights in the evening. You’ll have time to explore Reykjavik in between the two tours!

You’ll get picked up from your preferred pick-up location in Reykjavik at 8:30 – 9:00 am before heading towards Langjökull for the first experience of the day. There, you will have an exclusive opportunity to step inside Iceland’s second-largest glacier. 

Note: There will be a time gap between the ice caving tour and the Northern Lights tour, during which you can relax in your hotel and explore Reykjavik independently. 

As it gets dark, you will be picked up with a minibus and head to the city’s outskirts, away from the lights. When it’s darker, there’s more chance of seeing the magnificent auroras. Your knowledgeable guide will tell you all about the Northern Lights as you glance at the night sky.
